Vacancy & Turnover Rates Methodist Hospital of Dallas

HeartMath helped Methodist Hospitals of Dallas reduce staff stress, and improve relationships, turnover and vacancy rates.

Client Goals:

  • Stabilize two nursing units that were experiencing stress and high staff turnover and vacancy rates
  • Reduce staff turnover and stress for the overall hospital staff

Key Results:

  • 5 staff losses vs. 12 staff losses in the previous 6 months
  • Licensed staff vacancies dropped from 7.8% to 1.5%
  • Non-licensed staff vacancies dropped from 4.8% to 0.5%
  • Percent of sick hours has decreased post HeartMath (was growing pre HeartMath)

I feel much more relaxed and I have more energy. I feel that I can give even better care to my patients.
